In 1972 and 1973, Bob Coglianese was the official track photographer for the New York Racing Association, where he captured some of the most memorable moments of Secretariat’s sensational career that dramatically stamped his imprint on the sport. Secretariat raced in New York in 16 of his 21 career starts, and Mr. Coglianese's iconic image of Secretariat’s 31-length, record-breaking victory to claim the 1973 Triple Crown forever embedded the great champion’s legacy into American sports lore. This piece represents the defining image of Secretariat as he triumphed over his distant challengers to win the 1973 Belmont Stakes, capturing the dramatic moment when jockey Ron Turcotte looked over his shoulder at the electronic timer, just before Secretariat crossed the finish line. Unlike imitations and second-generation copies, this authentic photo is produced from the original negative in the photographer's personal collection. The 20x24" photo was produced exclusively for the Secretariat team, and it is triple hand-signed by jockey Ron Turcotte, owner Penny Chenery, and the photographer himself. Measures approximately 28x32" total in a double-matted classic black hardwood frame with solid brass engraved halter tag plate and includes Certificate of Authenticity.
